Hi everyone, The test was a real anti-climax. After the 6th question I knew that there was no way I could flunk. Java Ranch is one of the main reasons for the score I got. Thanks everyone. About the exam : 1. What I really loved was that we are tested on concepts without any attempt to trick us or throw us off the track with long winded pointless information. Its clear, simple and to the point. 2. Before the exam, I was really worried if I would remember all the methods in all the classes. Would I remember if it was "add()" or "addItem()" or all the methods in each collection class. But the exam does not test your memory and expect you to remember methods other than the commonly used ones. Again, its just concepts. 3. For people who've had an overdose of mock tests.... relax ... its not tough. If you've prepared well from a good certification guide and done some mock exams.... you'll pass. Passing is not a problem. Getting a high score requires a little more work and a lot of surfing on Java Ranch. 4. There's lots of time. I finished in an hour. Thanks again.
cool! jayashree. thanks for your encouragement. have you met the questions which are out of objectives such as mediatracker, socket, sth like that? Are all questions perfectly in objectives of SCJP2? I am not asking specific question. just general area. thanks.
Hi Fan Mo, The questions are as per the objectives stated. There are not on Sockets or Media Tracker directly. They figure indirectly in questions on the regular objectives. But its not confusing since they're just used to state a situation. If you want you can just get a basic idea about what they are to feel more confident. But remember to be thorough with your Certification Guide because that's what will lead you to the right answer when stuff like sockets or Media Tracker figure. Again it comes down to the concepts.
